Adventures in Julian

If you ever get the chance to explore Southern California, I would definitely add Julian to the list. It’s a little town tucked up in the mountains that is full of the world’s best pies. Nick grew up visiting this little town so his personal favorite is Julian Pie Company, which is why we...

Easter at Disneyland

We’ve started a new, mini tradition of having brunch at Easter at Disneyland. Last year, we went to the famous Carnation Cafe. This year, we started off the day at Storyteller’s Cafe. I’ll be doing a full recap and review in my new series called Disneyland Eats soon! I’ve had many requests for more...

My New Journey – One Without Bread!

I never thought I would ever be gluten-free. EVER. I’ve always said carbs are my weakness; I live for a good sourdough bread or a chocolate cupcake. Homemade baked goods are my kryptonite. Anyone who knows me knows that dessert is my first true love (sorry Nick!). Yesterday was a pretty big milestone for...

Disney Magic

Yesterday afternoon, I went on a spontaneous solo Disneyland trip. And it was amazing. The crowds were low, rose cups were in stock, and magic was in the air. *Rose cups, for those who aren’t aware, first showed up sometime in February (they’re Beauty & the Beast themed) and have been sold out ever...

I graduated!

Today marks three years since I graduated high school so I felt it was appropriate to also post some of my college graduation pictures as well. I am so thankful my friend, Elizabeth from Elizabeth Banks Photography, was in the area and we were able to take some pictures! She is amazing. We actually...

California Dreaming – Part 8

The sendoff. The most dreaded day of 2016. The day Nick officially leaves. We weren’t able to see him, as he was already on the ships, but they had organized a send off at a nearby park where we could watch the ships leave the harbor on their way out. There was a great...

California Dreaming – Part 6

Universal Studios Day! The “other Disneyland.” Actually the first time I had been there. Might as well had been the first time for all of us, it had been so long. They were in the process of building the Harry Potter portion of the park, opening in April, so the park felt a little...

California Dreaming – Part 5

My parents came into town to help move me back home and to say goodbye to Nick. Their flight was delayed so our day started a lot later than we expected. Instead, we walked outside Knotts Berry Farm for a bit and met my dad’s cousins at Medieval Times for dinner. Please share this with...

California Dreaming – Part 4

Nick took a week off right before deployment began so we could spend some extra time together. We had to deal with a lot of “adult” stuff like taxes, insurance, internet, etc. but we also left some room for the fun stuff! Naturally, my first request was the San Diego Zoo. Probably my all-time...
